So... ummm.... I wrecked my car and need to buy a new one. Head on over to the bazaar to check out the goodies I'm selling to help fund the wheels.
1022  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Klyde totaled his car... now selling games. on: November 02, 2013, 05:01:03 PM
Ouch man - that sucks. Good luck with the sales and getting a new car.

Yea, I'm lucky actually. If the dynamics of the accident were a bit different, it could have proven far more "Ouch-ee".... LoL

So like the subject expresses, I totaled my car... or more accurately a giant truck on the highway totaled my car... and it placed somewhat behind financially.

So I'm going to be throwing a few items up on e-bay, but figured I would give you fine folks a crack at the games and gaming-related merch first because I hate the e-bay hassle.

PRECAUTION: I do smoke. Items may or may not come with bonus limited edition cigarette odor if you are sensitive to that type of thing.

I need to make this move quick though so if anyone has interest, please express it because monday night/tuesday I will be listing.


- Lunar Silver Star Story Complete and Lunar Eternal Blue/PSX (Playstation 1)/ Silver star is in excellent condition, Eternal Blue has scratches but works perfect. I played through both beginning to end and can confirm that every inch of the games worked just fine. Both games have original cases and "making of" dvds. No additional bonus content (no hardbound books or maps). $55 us dollars.

-.hack//g.u. trilogy/Ps2/ All three games are in great condition (even the instuction booklets are still crisp). Some glue residue on the case where the price tag was is about the only quality complaint I have with them. $140 US dollars

-Tomb Raider 2013 Collectors Edition Tin Ps3 NEW (still sealed)/ Contains Lara figurine and all sorts of goodies/ $90 US dollars (that is ten less then I bought it for)

- Suikoden Bundle/ Suikoden 1-3-5 (no 4)/ All games have cases and manuals. Disc for suikoden 1 looks a wee bit rough but works just fine. Condition is acceptable/good for suikoden 1. 3 and 5 only have minor scratches. 35 US dollars

-Xenoblade for Wii/ Great-Excellent condition. Includes case and manual. 60 us dollars

-Skies of Arcadia Legends for Gamecube- Original case and manual. Great Condition 50 us dollars

-Static Arts Sephiroth PVC Statue

Like new minus some dust from shelf display. Put back in box. I paid 500 bucks. Asking 160 US dollars

All prices include shipping. Paypal only. All sales are final on account of the fact that the bucks will be used immediately to purchase a new vehicle. I am not unreasonable though, if you buy a game and for some reason it doesn't work, I will do a refund for something like that.

This is why I tried to suggest getting through the Alcamoth section before trying to do all the quests there earlier, it's most definitely the low point of the game. You're like a brief dungeon away from the plot taking off (unless you've already done Prison Island in which case the plot should already be beginning to rev up again, starting with Shulk getting his mid-season upgrade), and the area after that is when the gameplay should begin to pick up again (if not there then in the area after two rather straightforward areas after the first aforementioned area).

Also, the tomb shouldn't be too much trouble to navigate on subsequent visits should you find yourself returning there (there are a couple of spots that are still a pain, but the place does hold a few secrets; even if a few of them require end/postgame levels).

I'm actually in the snow area (I got there in like early October), and I skipped pretty much all of the sidequests in Alcamoth/Eryth Sea, except for the few I did incidentally.

Also the tomb isn't hard to navigate it's just the mandatory goddamn golems every five steps.

For the love of God, give the game a few more hours. you are almost THERE mesh!!! what is there?!? WHO is there!??? well you'll never know... until you get there!!!

But for real. Your a hop-skip away from some of the best parts of the game.

I didn't really care about this at all, but I'll have to admit it does look great.


Game is also delayed till March.

Not my cup of tea, but it does look pretty good. I could really see this game being a wet dream of sorts to those who are a fan or south park or that particular "brand" of humor. From the looks of it, quality control in regard to gameplay and presentation are remarkably high.

I want to start making a habit of posting in the game journal. I feel like I'm lacking something when I don't come here and post on a habitual basis.

Disgaea D2

Chapter 8 and still no real plot development to speak of. Yet, in spite of that fact I am enjoying the title none-the-less. Shallow as my taste might be, all I need is Laharl spouting off about beating the snot out of anyone who disagrees with him being the overlord to be satisfied. D2 certainly has ample amounts of that! In all honesty I wasn't expecting much more out of the narrative and continue to be pleasantly surprised by how engaging the battles are. I am overpowered at this point and yet the maps still demand I do a little thinking regardless. Gooooood stuff!!

Happy halloween folks!

I should go to gay bars and pick up guys to play video games with.

I picked up a chick to play Seiken Densetsu 3 couch co-op this time last year. Didn't work out... she was more interested in me than the game... I was only interested in the game. Had to finish that play-through single player.... Cool girl though, we became good friends :)
1028  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mugen Souls Z coming stateside 2014. on: October 23, 2013, 08:16:08 AM
I thought I was a NIS die hard until Mugen Souls... That game was the epitome of disappointment for me, as I did have very high hopes for it initially.

Personal opinion aside, I am astonished they are localizing this for a number of obvious reasons.

Heres hoping there is some sort of Neptunia-quality of improvement. I'll be a sucker and give it one more shot...
1029  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" on: October 21, 2013, 11:17:11 PM
Something amusing for people to mull over. When I was playing through the section of story you get plot-progression in using Lady Laharl I had a thought.

Do you think the main Disgaea/D2 continuity would've been better if you gender swapped every character from the get go?

I mean think about it for a second. LL is actually 'less' whiney and tsundere in female form. Maybe it was just the translation but the character felt just the right mix of negative traits without taking it to the 12th extreme like Laharl usually does. Etna I think might be a bit more amusing in male form simply for the outfit and translating all the 'flat' jokes to fit for that as well. And Flonne...well...not sure honestly. I think she'd pretty much be the same both ways without gender really factoring in. Although if anything 'he' might be more of a cliche since superhero/ninja stuff is more male-oriented to begin with.

I think they could have worked the gender-bender angle more to have made things more interesting for sure.... however something about fem-Laharl totally bothers me. I would have been pissed if I had to play as her the whole game.

On an unrelated note, NISA finally decided to send me my guide book that was supposed to come with the CE. Not bad... only 2 weeks late... I must say, it sure does have some pretty pictures :)
1030  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda LttP 2 for 3DS on: October 20, 2013, 09:20:49 PM
I like white consoles. That white 2nd model ps3 is fucking sexy, as is the white vita which I ALMOST imported but thankfully the vita's price dropped

As a very heavy smoker, I have great disdain for white plastic objects on any nature. In a short frame of time that crisp and sexy white, becomes Klydes very own special edition of yellow tar. A visual-proof of my disgusting habit staring me back in the face every time I see it.

That is all. Sorry to go off topic. Back to the matter at hand... The Zelda 3ds LE Console. Golly am I tempted!! It would look so sleek next to Zelda Wii U gamepad when docked and charging. Plus gold and black are like tobacco stain proof!!
1031  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Decided to give a computer RPG a try on: October 20, 2013, 09:10:56 PM
I think instead of trying CRPGs, you should try indentation and line breaks.

Xenogears kind of sucks.

Well it appears Link and I have two things in common... I too need to work on my typographical-forum-conduct. Then again, I have over-used ellipses to the point that I don't think people actually mind it any longer.

And I also want to play Xenogears. Well I want to re-play it. I played it so long ago I can hardly recall it. What I do recall however, was it being more of a case of long stretches of awesome and long stretches of totally sucking as opposed to just a "kind of sucks" total package.
1032  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's Top 20 PSP Games on: October 19, 2013, 02:01:21 AM
In regards to the list, I am mad BoF III didn't make it here.

I love the game and all... But Mikba and some of the gross-ass factory dungeons can suck a whole bag of dicks.

Gotta say I'm torn on the Breath of Fire argument. On one hand, personally, I am HUGE BoFIII fan. On the other hand, it is hard to ignore some of the games blaring faults. It is so easily broken if you exploit particular formations that take advantage of individual characters strengths it is ridiculous. Also, end game happens pretty abruptly for my taste. I almost felt like it ended preemptively... like, there should have been another few hours of some intense plot stuff.

So on my personal list, BoFIII would make the cut. However, being objective in crafting a list, I would have to exclude it.

Breath of Fire aside, great article/list for a truly awesome console. I spent more time with my PSP than I did my PS3 actually. The JRPG library, coupled with the ability to hook it up to the big screen made the PSP a real attractive device for me.

I loved Dissidia. Played a ton of single player, even more multiplayer. I think I had over 100 hours on the Japanese version. <3 Zidane.

Dissidia was bitter sweet for me... I liked it but... well... I sucked so much at it, it was almost no fun at all! LoL

1033  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" on: October 17, 2013, 04:31:57 PM
I am not nearly far enough in to judge the story yet (chapter 4) though I have found it bland thus far beyond the entertainment value of the recycled "Laharl, Etna Flonne" dynamic.

But like Cyril said, the battle system is spot on. The gameplay, amongst the other mechanical improvements, have been plenty enough for me to overlook any lack in regard to the plot.

I am particularly fond of some the simple yet pointless crap they tacked on in the dark assembly. Changing the MC at base along with the characters that follow, color palettes et cetera..... I also really like the "promotion" option for characters, which is a feature I had been hoping to see for quite awhile.

I am personally enjoying this a wee bit more than 4 simply because I felt 4 got too complex for its own good in some respects. I also feel the difficulty has been ramped up a bit with D2 which I really appreciate. I muscled my way through the plot in both 3 and 4 without ever really needing to tax my brain strategically.

I have to reserve my final judgement until I experience a bit more of the title though (obviously). I feel safe in concluding already however, your mileage and satisfaction from the game clearly comes down to what you play disgaea for. I'm in it for a grindy game with lots of character creation and strategy dominant battles. D2 is scratching the "itch" nicely :)
1034  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" on: October 15, 2013, 05:48:28 PM

On the other hand, the gameplay system is far and away the best.  My one complaint is that Clerics don't really get a ton of experience through healing anymore (much like Disgaea 1) so you're back to forcing them to physical attack or group attack to level up.

So ummm... game mechanics aside... how do you feel about the new "male" clerics? I don't mind the fem' vibe they got going on but those voices... I named one "Klyde" because I felt physically they sort of resembled me but every time I hear "him" speak I find it disturbing.
1035  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So does anyone think the Vita will get better? on: October 15, 2013, 05:43:56 PM
The Vita line-up actually has me furious with the fact that I can't stand handhelds. If I could manage to enjoy playing em, I would be pleased as punch with the vita.

So for this Klyde it all comes down to the Vita TV/ ability to somehow play vita games on the big screen.

The new Y's upscaled without adding insult to my already putrid-headache-inducing-posture (thanks to doing tattoos for a living) would utterly rock!
